By the Book
It might be a book targeted toward educators, but we think Ecoliterate: How Educators Are Cultivating Emotional, Social, and Ecological Intelligence has something to teach everyone. Written by Daniel Goleman, author of the classic bestseller Emotional Intelligence and Social Intelligence, along with the Center for Ecoliteracy’s Lisa Bennett and Zenobia Barlow, this hopeful new book offers inspiring stories, practical guidance, and a new model of education that builds on the success of social and emotional learning by addressing today’s most important ecological issues.
You’ll find stories of pioneering educators, students, and community leaders engaged in issues related to food, water, oil, and coal in communities from the Appalachia mountains to villages in the Artic to the deserts of New Mexico to the streets of Oakland. Eloquent and forward-thinking, Ecoliterate reveals how educators can advance academic achievement, protect our natural world, and foster strength, hope, and resiliency.
